The Poems of Robert Browning, Paperback

The Poems of Robert Browning Paperback

Part of the Wordsworth Poetry Library series



With an Introduction by Dr Tim Cook. Robert Browning (1812-1889) represents the intellectual and argumentative strand in English poetry in contrast to the more ornate style of Spenser and Tennyson.

His poetry demonstrates how a poet must be a sharp perceptive observer of the complexity of the human condition.

Perhaps his most moving poetry was written to express his feelings for his wife, the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in which he deals in a very 'modern' way with the uncomfortable fact that we can never quite bridge the gap between ourselves and the people we love.
